The FBI Leaks Begin: Emails At Center Of Hillary Criminal Probe Revealed

The ongoing criminal probe surrounding Hillary's email server has been marked by opacity and lack of virtually any disclosure, not to mention a major turf war between the FBI and the DOJ, which is why many were surprised when overnight the WSJ revealed that at the center of the probe over Hillary's handling of classified information are a series of emails between American diplomats in Islamabad and their superiors in Washington about whether to oppose specific drone strikes in Pakistan.

As the WSJ writes, the 2011 and 2012 emails were sent via the “low side’’—government slang for a computer system for unclassified matters—as part of a secret arrangement that gave the State Department more of a voice in whether a Central Intelligence Agency drone strike went ahead, "according to congressional and law-enforcement officials briefed on the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe." Note the last and recall that two months ago we noted that according to Chuck Grassley, an FBI "source" may leak what the FBI has uncovered so far, to wit:

“Is there going to be political interference? If there’s enough evidence to prosecute, will there be political interference?” Grassley wondered aloud on Friday. "And if there’s political interference, then I assume that somebody in the FBI is going to leak these reports and it’s either going to have an effect politically or it’s going to lead to prosecution if there’s enough evidence."

It appears that this is precisely what may have happened, and the "source" used the WSJ as the distribution platform.  And now that we (don't) know the "who", here is the "what."

The CIA drone campaign in Pakistan, though widely reported in Pakistan, is treated as secret by the U.S. government. Under strict U.S. classification rules, U.S. officials have been barred from discussing strikes publicly and even privately outside of secure communications systems. The State Department said in January that 22 emails on Clinton’s personal server at her home have been judged to contain top-secret information and aren’t being publicly released. Many of them dealt with whether diplomats concurred or not with the CIA drone strikes, congressional and law-enforcement officials said.

As the WSJ adds, some of the [drone-related] emails were then forwarded by Clinton’s aides to her personal email account, which routed them to a server she kept at her home in suburban New York when she was secretary of state, the officials said. Investigators have raised concerns that Clinton’s personal server was less secure than State Department systems.

The vaguely worded messages didn’t mention the “CIA,” “drones” or details about the militant targets, officials said. The still-secret emails are a key part of the FBI investigation that has long dogged Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, these officials said. They were written within the often-narrow time frame in which State Department officials had to decide whether or not to object to drone strikes before the CIA pulled the trigger, the officials said.

This is an issue, and potentially a criminal one, because "law-enforcement and intelligence officials said State Department deliberations about the covert CIA drone program should have been conducted over a more secure government computer system designed to handle classified information. State Department officials told FBI investigators they communicated via the less-secure system on a few instances, according to congressional and law-enforcement officials. It happened when decisions about imminent strikes had to be relayed fast and the U.S. diplomats in Pakistan or Washington didn’t have ready access to a more-secure system, either because it was night or they were traveling."

We all know Hillary will be elected.  Though she's guilty as hell, OScumBag will pardon her, and she will be elected by an enormous landslide.

After all, there are far more dead Democrats than live Conservatives.

After all, the criminal hag is being endorsed by the worst criminal in US history, what could possibly go wrong I wonder. The so-called voting majority that proudly put the Muslim criminal in office, will transfer their loyalty to the corrupt criminal bitch. Supporters of either or both should be hanged as traitors. Don't RIP USA.

Liberal bleeding hearts for all the wrong people.

If that bitch gets to run then we are all dead !

  NO THIS OBAMA SCUM BAG WILL NEVER BE ELECTED  BECAUSE THERE ARE WEIRDOS OUT THERE THAT WILL MAKE SURE SHE WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT THAT THEIR FAMILY WAS KILLED BY HER AND HER PANSEY ASSED HUSBAND THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT WITH LIES AND CRAP THEY HAVE DONE TO ALL OF US  THEY NEED TO COME OUT AND SAY SO NOW AND TAKE IT TO THE PEOPLE OF AMERICCA !!  THE ONLY REASON OBAMA WANTS TO PROTECT HER IS THAT HE IS UP TO HIS SCRAWNEY CHICKEN NECK WITH MURDERS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS LIKE SCALIA AND OTHERS THAT STOOD IN THEIR WAY NOW OBAMAS RULE IS COMEING TO AN END AND HIS CRIMINALITY WILL SHOW LIKE A FLAG WAVING THAT HE GAVE THE ORDERS AND CLINTON CARRIED THEM OUT THERE ARE TO MANY SKELITONS IN THE CLOSET AND THEY WILL BE FOUND AND PROSECUTED !! THEN CLINTONS AND OBAMAS REIGN WILL BE THAT THEY WILL BE EXECUTED FOR TREASON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One can only hope and pray that they are arrested, tried and if convicted put in front of a firing squad. But at least, if convicted they are sent to prison with no parole possible.

Treason is the only crime that still carries the FIRING SQUAD penalty.

Ronald ...

Penalty for treason in the US

The Criminal Justice Act 1990 abolished the death penalty, setting the punishment for treason at life imprisonment, with parole in not less than forty years.

Veronica, same thing.

Veronica...

I heard it was Mickey Mouse... they initially contacted the illuminati but the lights were all out and nobody was home. So, they contacted Disney World and hired their animation department to handle the matter. Death by Alligator was out, to dry in SW Texas, to make it look like an accident. Captain Hook was on a sabbatical and the rest of the villains were previously engaged by the White House. 

That left Mickey, to do the dastardly deed and with the help of Minnie Mouse, a stray pillow, and some digital magic, they managed to get the deed done.  No finger prints, just a little cheese and some rouge on the pillow... That's the benefit of digital effects, you can control the outcome, with the flick of a switch and the delete key... Oh, and a friendly Judge whose clairvoyant and on the payroll.

AWESOMEly funny!!

Mr. Chase, the reason obama wants to put a new federal judge in now.  HIS JUDGE.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
